Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In JAKKS Pacific, Inc. To Contact The Firm

21:09 EDT Friday, August 02, 2013

NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at JAKKS Pacific, Inc. ("JAKKS" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: JAKK).

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120119/MM38856LOGO )

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that:  (1) the shift in children's preferences toward electronic games were having a detrimental impact on demand for the Company's more traditional toys; and (2) JAKKS' poor toy sales were having a heavy negative impact on the Company's licensed toy properties.

After market close on July 17, 2013, JAKKS shocked the market when it slashed the Company's full-year forecast for revenues and earnings. The Company cited poor sales caused by a shift in children's playing choices in favor of electronic devices. Moreover, the Company stated that it would suspend its dividend and implement a major restructuring and downsizing plan. On this disappointing news, JAKKS shares fell $4.48 or approximately 39% percent from a close of $11.48 per share on July 17, 2013, to a close of $7.00 per share on July 18, 2013.
